The Emmanuel Church community views outreach, through service, neighborhood engagement and giving, to be a core enactment of our faith. There are many existing opportunities to serve.
Additionally, Emmanuel’s lay and clergy leadership seek to facilitate our members' efforts to expand the horizon of our good work. We are always open to new ideas to support, whether through volunteering or our grant program. (Nomination forms for the latter can be found here.)
Current outreach activities
I am pleased to announce that, in 2017, Emmanuel has continued to demonstrate its commitment to outreach and the fight against social injustice - especially helping poor, vulnerable and marginalized populations in Baltimore and even around the world. More than $30,000 was given to organizations who focus on these causes.
